Nina Name Meaning & amp; Origin | Baby Name Wizard

We named our new daughter Nina, and have had nothing but positive responses in her first six months of life. Everyone seems to know the name (how to spell it, how to say it), and we all get compliments. At the same time, there does not seem to be any particular preconception tied to the sound of the name, making it a wide-open space for our Nina to make the most of. We looked for a name that would suit a baby, a toddler, a school-aged kid, a teen, a young adult, etc. etc. And we feel we've chosen well. It's a name that seems equally appropriate for a scientist, Supreme Court justice, punk rock bass player, or whatever she wants to be ... (EDIT: she just turned 3, and there has been absolutely no "buyer's remorse" about Her name.

What I like about my name, Nina, is that it is so International I am 31 and over my life time I have met Nina's from Russia, German, Spain, Mexico, Puerto Rico and even Vietnam.

I always here, "I knew Nina once ..." and the occasional 'Nina, Pinta Santa Maria':)

The only time anyone misspelled my name was once, when someone wrote Neena.
